Scrupulously cleansing your skin every night is in fact your very first anti-aging gestureeven at 20! The reason? Because skin that's perfectly cleansed of all impurities will regenerate much better after dark. And the icing on the cake is that any skin care products you apply (lotion, serum, moisturizing cream or treatment oil) will be able to deliver their full benefits, whether they be anti-aging, anti-imperfectionssoothing, rehydrating, anti-spot The skin is much more receptive to active ingredients when it is well cleansed.

What are the 2 steps of double cleansing?

Phase 1: Make-up removal

It's the one that "lifts" greasy substances from the skin. Make-up, pollution and excess sebum are precisely the kind of greasy substances that a cleansing oil or balm will attract like a magnet.

Oily or combination skin prone to shine, enlarged pores or small pimples can finally break the vicious circle of stripping and excess sebum induced by an overly aggressive cleansing technique. By mimicking the skin's own sebum, the oil will lure the skin, encouraging the sebaceous glands to reduce their sebum production. Use our Cleansing Balm Oh My Cream Skincare if this sounds like you!

For sensitive or intolerant skin, the Middlemist Seven Camellia & Rose Gentle Cleanser Pai Skincare is a cream cleanser that removes impurities while providing softness, comfort and moisture, perfect for delicate skin.

- Very dry skin, on the other hand, will love the feeling of comfort left by Nourishing Oil Cleanser Huile Nettoyante Nourrissante Tata Harper' s generous, oily texture and green fragrance... The cult cleansing oil PreCleanse Dermalogica' s cult make-up remover oil is a sure bet when you're new to double cleansing: its excellent rinsability and practical pump bottle make it easy to give up on cotton pads.

For all the used make-up removing oils, the mode of use is systematically the same one: one mass by circular motions on dry skin (even the eyes), then one comes to rinse the whole with tepid water.

Step 2: Cleaning

This step refines the result and completes the cleaning process. Apply the gel, milk or cleansing foam to damp skin.

Poor skin cleansing habits

Some everyday cleansers can ruin the rest of your beauty routine.

The best-known? Micellar water, which, contrary to popular belief, is often far from being a gentle face cleanser. Most of the time packed with detergents, it shouldn't be used every day, especially if it's not rinsed off with clear water, as some of the impurities and the rest of the product remain in contact with the skin. Yes, this happy mixture will gradually dehydrate and sensitize the skin... Make-up removal wipes pose the same "risk" as micellar water, causing irritation and even pimples over time . In the shower, using only water is not enough to cleanse the skin: just imagine washing your dishes with only water to understand what's wrong... Finally, facial shower gel should also be avoided, as it dissolves the skin's hydrolipidic film!

Basically, you punish your skin by taking away its shield, which is supposed to defend it against external aggression... In short, you forget all your bad habits and find your perfect combo ;-)
